You want to talk about a war on women, apparently you need look no further than the Atlantic City Court House where the DA and Judge conspire to help wife beaters while punishing single mothers with bad sense of direction.
Firstly, you have Ray Rice, who beat his wife unconscious in an elevator, dragged her out and left her head in the doorway in the tracks of the closing elevator doors as she laid there unmoving.
How did Atlantic County prosecutor Jim McClain decide to proceed with this brutal case of spousal abuse? Why, he entered Ray Rice into a pre-trial intervention program (PTI) for first time offenders and Superior Court Judge Michael Donio signed off on it, thereby sparing Rice from jail time.
I don’t know if it is complete ignorance, gun hatred or misogyny, but as willing as DA McClain and Judge Donio were to grant Ray Rice entrance into the PTI program, they were equally as steadfast and obstinant when it came to 27 year old single mother Shaneen Allen.
As I wrote about before with Ms. Allen’s circumstances, her crime that apparently, according to McClain and Donio was SO MUCH WORSE than beating a woman unconscious was taking a wrong turn and entering New Jersey while in possession of her legally owned firearm from Pennsylvania. Not only did she have it in her possession, this threat to society even went so far as to inform the police officer who pulled her over when she made a traffic violation that she was armed…in McClain and Donio’s mind no doubt all part of her nefarious plan.
